Noir Officially Debuts + Fires Up Intensity Level On First Single MV “Gangsta”
Rookie group Noir officially launched their K-pop journey today!
Noir welcomes the spring with motivated spirit on April 9 by dropping the neat and high-octane music video of “Gangsta” from their debut album Twenty’s Noir.
In French, “noir” implies mixing many colors and eventually becoming darker. The K-pop newbies’ first album moves on a dark tone, and is mixed with hints of varied colors that represents each member of the group.
The nine-membered idol group is formed by Luk Factory. Out of nine, three of the members – Yoonsung, Yonguk and Hoyeon have participated in Mnet’s hit project boyband reality show, Produce 101 Season 2. Yonguk, Hoyeon and Seunghoon were also in a musical in Japan called “Altar Boyz”. The other 5 members are Junyoung, Siha, Siheon, Daewon, and Minhyuk.
The title song “Gangsta” is a Moombahton electronic dance music which is full of masculine moments. It spins the story of how a boy wants to occupy solely the thoughts of a girl who he likes. The track highlights the group’s appeal by showcasing rough rapping and emotional vocal parts.
Twenty’s Noir features six songs, with “Intro” containing the overall feel of the album.
Title track “Gangsta” electrifies the mood while “Holinda” befits the trendy style of the boys. “Travel” soothes with R&B groove and “Star” depicts the group’s future aspirations.
The K-pop idols’ first mini album will be available from noon on the 9th. A debut showcase was also launched for Noir’s first official stage. On the 13th, Noir will hold a celebratory fan-signing event at My Live Hall in Gangnam, Seoul.
